Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've got a small problem with my Samba-Server (or my Windows-Version):
I've got a directory that is shared via Samba: (posting out of /etc/samba/smb.conf)
path = /mnt/storage/samba/mp3new
valid users = @smb-user
read only = No
Unix-Permissions on that folder:
drwxrwx--T 2 root smb-user 4096 18. Mär 22:55 mp3new
In this folder is one file for testing: (x.mp3)
-rw-r--r-- 1 admin smb-user 0 18. Mär 22:55 x.mp3
User admin belongs to group smb-user and user testuser belongs to smb-user
When I access the Samba-Server using the testuser I can "delete" the file,
allthough sticky bit is set and I'm NOT the owner of it. Windows deletes it.
I looked into linux but the file is still available. (logical! - sticky bit is set!)
Then I press i windows in the explorer F5 (to actualize my view) and the
file is there once again! Why do I don't get an error-message, that the file
CAN'T BE deleted like in unix? I tried also to rename the file via windows.
That doesn't worked and I got a error-msg! But "deleting" works... (ok, the file
is still there....)
Any ideas? Guess it's a windoof-bug or I'm too stupid to configure the server
